About Me

You can call me Peter, a fellow who enjoys traveling, drinking, partying and having fun.
My friends say that I am always smiling, and it is so true. I use to be shy and quiet at the beginning but when I become comfortable with a person I become talkative especially if we are talking over beer.
Born in the Philippines, lived in Japan when I was 23 and then Saudi Arabia for 8 years. Now living in Norway and travelling the world.

PHILOSOPHY

Love and Respect others, try to help even though you are also in need. It is in sharing that we are at our happiest.
"The only reason for the triumph of evil is for the good men to do nothing."
"I'd rather regret the things that I have done than the things I have not."
"I only go to work when I need a break from travelling." Unfortunately, I spend more days to work than to travel.
"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hosting, surfing, partying and travelling.

Whenever I have time, I travel. I have not been to many places but I'm starting to cross out some in my list.

People. People. People. I like to meet people, gain new friends, listen to stories and share mine. I once heard "We are 7 billion people in this planet and it is 7 billion different stories." Oh yes! we are 8 billion now..

Also, I want to promote my own country. Invite people to come to my beloved Pilipinas and see her beauty.

Interests

Photography and running has been my passion for more than two years. I'm learning photography just by myself and getting tips from others and from net. I used to run atleast once a week to keep me fit. I have joined several marathons here in Manila and I do it for a cause.
I love to be in nature especially bodies of water and I believe that I was a fisherman in my past life.
Trekking, museums, food, beer and wine. I am pretty adventurous, tell me something that I haven't seen, done or tasted and will try it as long as it is legit.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Attending charity events are the most amazing things I have done.
And also, I've done cliff diving though I'm not a good swimmer when a French guy shoved me on a cliff.. hahaha,.. peace Samuel!
Taking Hollywood Dream Ride in Osaka three times! At first I was thrilled and then I get addicted.
I can't get enough of some adrenaline rush, I went to Formula Rossa which is the fastest roller coaster in the world (240km/hr).

What I Can Share with Hosts

Some happiness, my stories, my smile and laughter. If you are interested, I can teach you some engineering stuff.

I can cook adobo, it's not always good but sometimes I'm lucky. I am pretty domesticated, haha, I do house chores, seriously. I can return the favor of being a host in the Philippines, I just need to be informed in advance because I only come home twice a year.

If you are planning to visit my beloved Pilipinas, I can at least share about the 7100 islands.
